Once the skillet is hot, add the orange slices sugar-side down and cook until lightly caramelized, about 1-2 minutes. Remove the orange slices from the skillet and place them on a plate with the brûléed-side facing up. Set aside.
  2. Stir together all of the ingredients for the cinnamon-sugar rim and place the mixture on a small plate. Wet the rim of your glasses with some of the apple cider, then invert the glasses over the cinnamon-sugar mixture, pressing down to coat. Add a few ice cubes to the glasses and set aside.
